Last Sunday was tri-tip. My friend Kelly is my source - she is 100% paloe/Atkins, and she and her hubby buy it in bulk. That means I get some too at a bargain $8 a lb. Each package usually has about 3.5 lbs and two small tri-tips. This is easily enough meat for us to eat all week. (Truly, it's more than we would normally eat.)
This week's menu started with tri-tip, rice with veggies from the CSA, and kale chips.
Friday night was pizza (ordered in). Saturday lunch was a friend's birthday party, where we ended up with leftovers. And Saturday night was pizza. So, the illness means we are cooking less for sure. I just haven't been feeling like eating vegetables either.
On that note, the CSA is over for the year. They extended the season for four weeks, but since we'll be gone that last week, we didn't sign up. We do need to sign up for next year though. I should check on that. So my haul at the farmer's market was larger to make up for it.
This year we're not having turkey (long story), but I am roasting a chicken on a bed of delicious root vegetables.
Poor hubby. He was supposed to play tennis today for the first time in weeks. I awoke at about 5 am to a tinkling sound of rain. No tennis for him. We've both been slacking on our workouts. With the inability to breathe, I haven't been swimming in four weeks. My exercise involves 2 days a week at the gym, 30 mins elliptical, 15 min weights. And one day walking 2-3 miles on the weekend. It's gotta be enough to keep me going until I am healthy again.
